A dog who boarded an Irish Rail train this morning is set to be reunited with his owner.

The friendly ‘Oscar’ hopped on the train to Dublin at Newbridge Station at 7:30 am.

Irish Rail tweeted: Lots of customers reporting this friendly commuter boarded the train at Maynooth this morning at 07.30hrs, and is now en route to Dublin Connolly – if you’re living in Maynooth and missing your dog, let us know!

The owner was swiftly notified and is set to collect the pooch at Connolly Station.


It’s not the first time a dog has boarded a Dublin-bound train at Newbridge – back in July a terrier snuck on a carriage, prompting a social media search for its owner.
